Default Am I the only one who doesn't adore Family Guy?

Am I? I mean, it's not a very smart show at all. They rely on cheap/old humor like "I'm thinking of a number between 4 and 6, what is it? Then Peter can't answer the question. Really creative, McFarlane. Another thing, they keep airing that same damn episode where the dog finds his family then him and Stewie sing that Rhode Island song? I've seen that episode 4 times in a row when I'm flipping through channels. I don't know, just seems like a juvenile show for high school kids and people who find everything funny. At least shows like South Park and Simpsons get creative with their humor.

Nope. I don't hate it, but usually change the channel when it comes on.

I enjoyed the first few seasons, but I was a juvenile high school kid at the time though. It's not a very re-watchable show though, since a lot of it's humor is based on randomness. Stopped watching around season 4 or 5, I can't remember.

I've always thought of it as a crude ripoff of the Simpsons.

I used to enjoy it but unlike South Park or even the Simpsons it doesn't have the same replay value for me.

I like American Dad more, but it looks like that show is going downhill as well.

It really depends on the age group. If you're around 20+, you grew up on the Simpsons during their heyday. If you're a little younger, you probably watched both, if you're in your teens, then more likely you grew up on Family Guy.

And I've heard and seen a lot of thing from Family Guy that were stolen from the Simpsons, but some of it could be coincidence. I guess that's the price you pay when two shows are very similar in comedic style.

I'll admit, I never even attempted to watch Family Guy. I think I just loved the Simpsons and the early seasons of South Park too much to care about Family Guy.

South Park trumps Family Guy though both are still hilarious. South Park is just great at their satirical humor.

I cannot stand that show. The fact that it's on the air is shocking to me. That's how bad I think it is.

Family Guy is the only animated show that I like. It's funny as hell.
